摘要

Reinterpreting Butler's theory of gender performance and Goffman's idea of self-presentation, this paper primarily explores the issue of "identity performative" in the Internet forum by looking at the case of Taiwanese tongzhi identity. In developing the concepts of citationality and situationality in identity performative, it builds a link between Butler and Goffman both theoretically and methodologically. Via discourse analysis, the case study maps out the way in which a major tongzhi forum provides a social space that allows the emergence of speech acts citing discourses concerning tongzhi identity as well as those positioning oneself situationally in debates on tongzhi body and tongzhi activism. The discussion of this paper suggests the performative acts via the online forum contribute to the materialization of tongzhi identity and in the meantime manifest the heterogeneity of tongzhi identity, complicated by the issues of the body and sexual morality.
